Older adults face many post-retirement adjustments, as do their families. Through interviews, research, and commentary, Ruth Fowler explores the powerful emotional connections between aging parents and their adult children. As We Grow Old examines such topics as:
- post-retirement depression and anxiety,
- physical illness,
- decisions about assisted living,
- grief, and
- building quality communication.
Fowler uses the Christian faith as a resource and guide throughout as readers are encouraged to face the issues of agin with candor and grace. The voices of both generations are heard with clarity as they try to do what is right for themselves and for one another.
